Today’s fun highlights:

  • I am a firm believer in (most) J.Crew style philosophies and apparel pieces. I’m also a firm believer that you can never own too many stripes. So when J.Crew created their own holiday for today (aka National Stripes Day), of course I HAD to participate.
  • And I just love those made-up holidays, because who really needs another excuse to eat more chocolate chip cookies, share cute pictures of my dog, or wear my favorite pattern? The more the merrier!
  • This weekend, I am celebrating that my mom’s surgery went perfect (best outcomes allllll around), and she is recovering like a champ. Thank you all again for your well wishes and prayers. They worked (and were very much appreciated)! ❤

Today’s fun highlights:

  • Animal graphic prints. Why must you be my weakness? Especially puppies!
  • But seriously, half the reason I bought this jacket was to replace an old one. The other half? Because of the hidden puppy print lining! Puppies, guys! Soooo cute!
  • This week was pretty standard, except I accidentally discovered the GREATEST thing ever. Half-day Wednesdays! Why is this the greatest thing ever? Let me tell you…
    • 1.) The Husband actually had to work all last weekend, because he’s in IT and something crazy happened, so he had to fix it. His boss gave him a free personal day to us, so he picked Wednesday. Since we didn’t get to spend that much time together, I took the afternoon off…so instant day date!
    • 2.) It’s also like a mini-weekend during the workweek. You work half your week and then take the afternoon off on Wednesday, and then work two more days until the actual weekend!
    • 3.) You can do things that are normally too busy to do on the weekends (or might not even be open). Like try a new, very popular restaurant and not wait for a table (Milktooth is worth ALL of the hype here in Indy, so good). Or vote early without dealing with insane lines. Or grab some beers from a local brewery and have the full attention of the bartender!
    • Seeeeee? Half-day Wednesdays are where it is AT!
  • This weekend, we’re celebrating my mother-in-law’s birthday in Illinois…and hopefully spending a ton of time outside, since it is suppose to be a beautiful fall weekend! Give me all the leaves, please!

Today’s fun highlights:

  • You know…because that’s a thing. That I just created…on this blog…where I am most definitely not Parisian nor a motorcycle biker.
  • And most people would debate you on the chic part too! ;)
  • This week flew by and I’m happy to be back into the swing of things at work (and not buried under emails after being out)!
  • This weekend we’re staying home, and I’m attempting to clean out my closet (or at least start the process). My side of the closet is slowwwllly starting to take over the whole closet.
  • We’re also going to our annual Halloween party! I’ll try to remember to share our costume on Instagram, but it is a secret until then!
  • Is anyone else dressing up for Halloween? Let me know what you are going as!

London Travel Diary

merona utility jacket + black and white stripe tee + loft jeans + vintage coach purse | Style On Target blog

Our first stop on this year’s Europe tour was London, mainly because the flights from the US to London was super affordable, but also because our beloved Colts were playing their first overseas football game.

They happened to lose (super sad), but we still were able to enjoy two days in one of my favorite cities! Two days seems a lot longer before you start to factor in jet lag and airport waiting time, but we still managed to see and do a lot!

Top Eight Things to Do in London (in the order we did them):

  1. Take In an NFL Game at Wembley Stadium – Okay, only if you are really, really obsessed with your team. It was a great experience to watch a super American sport in a foreign country. They don’t just wear jerseys of the two teams that are playing…they wear ALL the NFL jerseys ever. I even got an opportunity to explain one of the rules to some Londoners. Just another day of educating the world ;).
  2. Walk Along the Thames – There is really no better way to see London. There are endless sights to see in this historic city, so slip on some sneakers and pound that pavement. My favorite area to walk in London? Right along the river Thames, where you can see the London Eye, Big Ben, and all those bridges!
  3. Say Hi to Big Ben – My favorite landmark to see in London. And I never get sick of looking at it (I studied abroad in London and have been back two times since)! It just is so iconic and a part of a very important building (the Parliament Building). Fun fact, the name Big Ben refers to the large bell in the tower…which is actually called Elizabeth Tower (yes, after the queen).
  4. Pretend You Live in Buckingham Palace – 775 rooms? It’ll do, I suppose. ;)
  5. Visit One of the Top Museums – The Husband only got the chance to go to the British Museum (home of the Rosetta Stone) and some of the art museums the last time we were in London. So this go-around, we made some time to visit the Victoria and Albert Museum (which is honestly the BEST museum in London, in my opinion). The museum has 2.3 million objects in their permanent collection, and while you can’t possibly see them all, you can pick and choose what topics interest you (fashion and jewelry for me). And did I mention admission is COMPLETELY free?
  6. Ride the Tube – While walking might be the best way to see London, riding the Tube is a must! It’s so easy to figure out, and there are so many stops that you can really get anywhere in the city quite quickly. Just be sure to “mind the gap.” ;)
  7. Have a Drink in a Pub – Pick a pub, any pub! They’re all over, and sometimes, they have the best names! We happened to have a hotel right next to pub called The Fox and Anchor, so of course, I had to con The Husband to have lunch and a pint there. Win, win.
  8. Dine on Fish and Chips – Because while the food may be a little bland in London, at least it is iconic!

Our next stop (which probably won’t be posted until next week) was Lisbon! It was our first time in Portugal, so naturally, I have lots of photos to go through (#allofthetile!).

Today’s fun highlights:

  • You can’t really beat a classic combo of stripes, jeans, and a utility jacket, so that’s why I didn’t fight it…I just wore it!
  • Scallop flats for the win…thank you Sam & Libby for making the best shoes EVER.
  • Today is our last full day in Europe, and it is crazy to me that it is almost over! We’ve had a blast, and I realize how lucky I am to be able to take this long of a trip and spend that much time with The Husband!
  • I do miss The Puppy though (and my own bed and hair dryer), so I can’t wait to get home to him!

Weekend sales:

  • None this week because we’re still traveling (I can tell you all about the deals in Lisbon, though)! They’ll be back in two weeks!
